Technical Course Overviews

Technical Support Leader (TSL)

This NAUI Support Specialty Course is designed to train knowledgeable NAUI Divemasters and Assistant Instructors who are also technical divers to act as part of a support team for technical diving and training activities.

A NAUI Technical Support Leader (TSL) is qualified to provide assistance to teams of technical divers provided diving conditions and methods approximate those in which the TSL was trained. These duties may include shuttling of equipment, removal and replacement of staged decompression gases and equipment, rigging and setting up decompression stations and gases and monitoring divers during ascent and staged decompression stops. An active-status NAUI TSL is qualified to assist an active-status NAUI Technical Instructor in technical courses. *(NOTE: Maximum depth attained and gases used by the TSL may not exceed the qualifications of technical diver certification held by the TSL.)
